Remember that episode of Sex and the City where Carrie goes to pay for brunch and accidentally tosses a thong out of her handbag? Any woman who has ever been in a relationship with someone that she wasn't living with knows how that scenario rings true. If you're staying at a guy's place a lot, a giant handbag is a must-have for toting your extra undies, makeup, and hair products.
Apparently, handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff got the joke, too; she has a so-called Morning After Bag, which according to the designer's web site is "ideal for a morning after, (whatever the circumstance has brought your way), through to P.M., and even back again to A.M." You can buy it here for $528. To see some of my other favorite oversized handbags,
